3.88/5  rDev -5.4%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.75

Was served with a pleasant looking fairly bright amber color with some lacing. Smell was nice, with some caramel from the malt and some pine from the hops and the alcohol well concealed. The taste was similar, with fruit, caramel, and pine, and the flavors were fairly bold and the alcohol was again hidden. The mouthfeel was the only thing off for me, as it was somewhat too thin and undercarbonated. Overall, this was a good, but not exceptional beer. Perhaps it was served too cold, but nothing stuck out here too much, although it was nicely balanced.

Serving type: on-tap

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

22oz bottle dated 10/1/13 poured into a pint glass
A: Burnt orange color with a one-finger head
S: Grapefruit, pineapple, malt and toffee
T: Lots of toffee and caramel. Honestly some of the most I've ever tasted in a beer. This is followed by orange zest, roasted malt and tropical fruits.
M: Medium+ bodied
O: By the time I got to the end of the bottle I thought this ended up a touch sweet but overall this is a well made, tasty beer that fits the style but has its own personality and I wouldn't hesitate to drink it again
